Steven JupiterNew York, NY
A writer/artist/musician and recovering lawyer, Steven has taught GMAT, GRE, and LSAT since 1999, in both the U.S. and Europe. Steven gets right to the heart of the test and give his students the low-down while keeping class light.
Steven got his start in test prep teaching LSAT and quickly expanded to GMAT and GRE, having scored in the 99th percentile on all three (GMAT 780). He worked in curriculum development for another test-prep company before joining Manhattan GMAT in 2002, where he was the first Director of Curriculum and Product Development. Steven understands that standardized tests are stressful for most people and does his best to simplify the exam and minimize anxiety with humor and no-nonsense teaching. One of the most senior instructors at MGMAT, Steven has worked with students of many different backgrounds and skill levels. Having written scores of practice questions himself, he knows the minds of the test writers and gives his students insight into their thought process, providing an edge in breaking down tougher problems. Before test prep, Steven was variously a lawyer, an editor, and a PhD candidate in sociolinguistics (undergrad major in linguistic anthropology). A native New Yorker and current resident of the West Village, he's also lived in Paris, Madrid, Switzerland, Chicago, San Diego, and Boston. When not teaching, he's most likely writing, painting, making music, or vanquishing his opponents in online Scrabble.
